I don't know if she did it, but she and her boyfriend never really explained their bizarre confessions, or why their stories changed multiple times, or why she falsely accused her boss of doing it, or why she didn't call the police after finding the bathroom covered in blood. May not be enough to convict, but all of that sure raises a lot of suspicions in my mind.

Really surprised by this Mike. There was a ton of evidence in her favor and not a whole bunch of concrete evidence to convict. Have you been following the case closely?

For me at least, the language barrier, 15 hr interrogation, convincing DNA evidence and press portrayal,raise reasonable doubt. Add to that the fact that she faced an even more severe sentence with an appeal and a shady prosecution based on hunch rather than fact, makes me think justice was served here.

Anyway, Cheers and hope all is well!

Well, you all seem really sure of yourselves, so there must be some explanation for all of that weirdness -- like how she and her boyfriend went out and bought thongs the day after the murder. Not evidence of murder, no, but very strange behavior. And she basically didn't have an alibi, from what I understand. This is a person who allegedly came home and found her apartment covered in blood and did not call the police.

She had a brilliant PR campaign behind her though, so I guess they were able to create enough pressure to free her. If she's really innocent, then good for her. But let's not forget that she was also convicted of slander for falsely accusing her boss. Why was she making up stories? I'm just not sure I believe that the poor girl buckled under interrogation.
